Hello February! (In Drawings)

February Style Inspiration, Illustrated.

A new month still means a new calendar page, even though this page will probably stay pretty empty since we’re still in lockdown here. I guess I could start marking what I watched on Netflix on it…🤔

Hopefully by the end of this month things will have changed for the better and I can finally start filling up this calendar. In the meantime I will just make the best of it and enjoy a lot of chilling at home time.💚 Do you have exciting plans for February or are you also still stuck at home?⁠

Take a look here and here for my February pages from previous years.

January Favourites, In Drawings.

My January Favourites, Illustrated Recap.

As you might be able to tell from this illustration, despite the lockdown and an evening clock here in the Netherlands, my January has been pretty OK and much better than my December.

Why? Let’s see:⁠
– Getting my Vitamin D with regular muddy hikes in good company⁠
– New music and an album coming soon from Ben Howard⁠
-‘Conan O’brien needs a friend’ makes me laugh so much every week.⁠
– I did 2 (very) cold water dives in the river and felt SO good afterwards⁠
– A lovely sunny trip to the island of Brrrrr with Andrei⁠
– A lot of chilling at home, cooking, reading, dancing, Netflix, etc with zero FOMO⁠

I also have it available on a postcard to spread the feel-good vibes. You can also follow me on Instagram for more regular updates.

Hello January!

Happy New Year!

This is the first page of my 2021 calendar. A mix of cozy winter items and a positive outlook.⁠ The calendar is sold out (thank you!🙏🏻) but I have lots of other paper-goodies available in my Etsy shop.🛒 Take a look if you like what you see, and want to support a small business. Dutch shops are sadly still closed so I could really use it. Take care⁠💚

Hello Winter!

Today is the first official day of winter (on the Northern hemisphere that is). And although this one will be a little (or a lot) different from other years, there’s still so much to enjoy. For starters: the days will start to get longer again, hurray!! And what about candles, cozy knitwear, yummy comfort food and long winter walks followed by hot drinks? (Mulled wine is my favourite!) Winter can also be a time to recharge, find new inspiration and make plans. Are you as excited for the start of winter as I am? I would love to hear it and why.

Hej! Scandinavian Style, Illustrated.

Scandinavian Winter Style, In Drawings.

Scandinavian-winter-style-inspired illustration, because French style is not the only style I’m obsessed with.⁠.

I love the simple, practical yet elegant fashion that Scandinavians are known for. They really know how to dress well for the cold. I often think of their famous saying: “There is no bad weather, only bad clothes” when I feel like staying inside because of bad weather. It really motivates me to go outside anyway.

If you like this drawing, take a look at my Scandinavian Winter Style postcard on Etsy. You can also follow me on Instagram for more regular updates.

I’m selling a few original drawings, in A4 and A5 size. I have them available in my Etsy shop.

Can you believe it’s already February?! Me neither, but it really is, so time to turn my calendar to a new page. This month illustration has a vintage winter fashion vibe.
